Your savory breakfast links:

  • The big finale scrimmage of the 2015 Caps Development Camp begins today at 10:30, with remarks by head coach Barry Trotz at 10:20. The scrimmage with John Walton's call will stream live on Monumental Network. [Monumental]

  • Camp coverage from the previous 24 hours:
    • "I’m a pretty young GM, but I knew that grit and size were going to be key when I drafted my team. It all ended up paying off." Tommy DiPauli 's squad captured the three-on-three tournament title. [DiPauli Blog (Day Three, Day Four)]
    • Not so much for Connor Hobbs' team: "We placed fifth out of the six teams and missed making it into the playoff bracket—definitely not our best showing. Thankfully we didn’t get dead last. We won the "Server’s Bowl" game against the other non-playoff team to avoid having to serve supper to the rest of the boys later that evening, so I guess that’s all that mattered for us in the end." [Hobbs Blog (Day Three, Day Four)]
    • Day Four pics. [RMNB]

    • That's Coach Halpern to you, campers. Former Caps captain Jeff Halpern was invited by GM Brian MacLellan to bring several dozen maple glazed attend as an associate coach. Preparation is key, it would seem. [CSNW]

    • Riley Barber's college career didn't end quite the way he had hoped, but it helped launch his pro career, so there's that. [WaPo]
  • Caps prospects are always groovy, but the future is now. Welcome to Washington, Justin Williams:
    • Williams held his introductory press conference at Kettler on Friday. [Monumental (video)]
    • Coming into free agency, he had a four-point list. He was able to check off all the items when the Caps came calling... [WaPo, CSNW]
    • ... including Numero Uno - winning another championship. [WashTimes, AP]
    • He will wear number 14. #confirmed [Caps OT]
    • But should Caps fans temper their expectations? Even a little tiny bit? [the Score]
  • Oh hai there T.J. Oshie. Nice of you to stop by as well.
    • He sat for his Vogsterview. [Monumental (video)]
    • He will wear number 77. #confirmed [Caps OT]
  • Braden Holtby contract update - no news is, well, no news... [CSNW]

  • Finally, happy 49th birthday to Bob Joyce and happy 59th to Jorgen Pettersson, and raise a glass in memory of the late Gaetan Duchesne, who would have been 53 today.
